SWEPIS - SWEdish Post Induction Study

Standard treatment for late term and post term pregnancies in many countries is induction of labor at 41 GW. However, there is insufficient scientific support that induction of labour at 41 GW, as compared with expectant management and induction at 42 GW will reduce perinatal mortality and morbidity without an increase in operative deliveries, negative delivery experiences or higher costs.
